what people are saying
When I first connected with Josh Nowack and he told me about his company and what his mission is, it touched my heart tremendously. His main goal is to help people get that 2nd chance in life. With a child myself that had once been incarcerated, I know how important that "2nd chance" is. Over the months, we stayed connected and used Breaking Free Industries as much as we could. They were small jobs, a few tee shirts here and there. Not only is their work impeccable, the pricing, the service, the details are flawless. Josh even donated our staff with personalized logo cloth face masks and also donated custom made shirts for an online mixer we had. His generosity is unbelievable. We will continue to give him and his company as much business as we can moving forward. He will do small, medium or large jobs with ease. I highly recommend Breaking Free Industries, they will not disappoint!
I found Breaking Free Industries by doing research to first solve a problem of our growing business. How do we build custom apparel but not use the larger production houses which seems very limiting. Why you ask? Well the larger houses will replace high quality products with lower ones when they are out of stock, the packaging and experience did not live up to our brand image and style, and there was no one to partner with to think about the growth of my business. Breaking Free Industries created a model that allowed for custom apparel (tees, tanks, sweatshirts, hoodies, hats, leggings, etc.) in single color or full color. They also just added the capability to handle sewn on stencils. Our ability to partner on future designs, find the volume that provides better margin and create a custom send experience to the end client was second to none. On top of that the company stands for helping people get a second chance in life. Most of us have either been in that spot or know someone closely who needed a second chance and this company is providing that opportunity. If you have any need for custom apparel (schools, companies, camps, sports leagues, or more importantly new small businesses who want a more custom experience vs the classic big Print on Demand houses), than, I highly encourage you to reach out to this company.
Born and raised in Los Angeles I have lived an easy life compared to most. I've navigated through our judicial system from a place of white privilege; support and guidance have kept me alive. But I know this is not the case for 99.9% of the people out there. What makes me believe that I am worthy of a future is the idea that I am not my alleged mistakes. Someone took a chance on me and said "I'm more interested in what you can do than what you may have done." Working at BFI is my way of passing the torch... and getting some neat swag for free :)
We’ve all made mistakes. Some of us were caught. There is an abundance of untapped talent. My goal here is to unleash that talent and creating an organization that is a positive, nurturing, and a profitable environment that is criminally good.
Hello, I would like to share something about my story, for years I was deprived of liberty. There were plans in my life before the confinement that were left in limbo and others that I definitely had to give up forever, but the most important thing is that I find new dreams and goals; I always wanted my own restaurant but when I got out of prison I crashed into a completely different world, really a drastic and overwhelming shock; but you know I have never stopped chasing my dream, I think that if I resisted that dehumanizing place, surely I can cope with the new world that I found; Fortunately for me Breaking free industries (my good and disinterested friend Josh) opened a new window towards my future with a simple but complicated and sometimes even questioned action, I believed in myself out of all prognosis for being an ex-convict, now I have a chance also I learned a new job, true happiness is in walking the path of life, even if sometimes you stumble, giving up is not an option. standing firm and holding your head up is the tricky thing, remember life is not a competition. no one is going to get there first than us, life is a journey in which each person has their own mission. we just have to breathe and enjoy. Thanks, Josh, for believing in me.
